According to The Scottish Sun, Rangers trio Steven Davis, Jermain Defoe and Allan McGregor are all set to pen new contracts with the Ibrox club in what is a massive boost for manager Steven Gerrard.

The Gers boss himself is set to sign a new deal that will keep him at Ibrox till 2024, and three key players will now follow suit with one-year extensions each.


Defoe arrived on an 18-month loan from Bournemouth in January, and will now sign a permanent deal having regularly expressed his desire to do so and end his playing career in Scotland.

The 37-year-old has scored 21 goals in 43 appearances for Rangers so far, and he’s not showing signs of slowing down.

Goalkeeper McGregor has triggered a one-year extension based on the number of appearances the 37-year-old has made since returning to the club in the summer of 2018, and a new back-up goalie and potential long-term is expected to be brought in next month or in the summer, depending on when Wes Foderingham leaves.

Midfielder Davis rejoined Rangers last January, initially on a six-month loan deal from Southampton, but is now set to sign a new deal that will keep him at the club till June 2021 after the move was made permanent in the summer with his existing contract due to expire next summer.
